Weightlifting is recommended as part of every person's workout
By Howard Schneider
August 01, 2007
Building muscles, one at a time
The People Who Know What's Good For Us have made life progressively difficult, moving from general recommendations such as "maintain ideal weight" to detailed orders for 60 to 90 minutes of exercise every day.
You can now add weightlifting to the creeping set of obligations. It's not explicit in the government's overall guidelines, but the more detailed suggestions from agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend a couple of rounds of resistance training each week. (And that includes you cardio junkies out there because aaaallllll thaaaaatttt time on the treadmill won't guarantee that you can sit up straight when 27 becomes 77.)

Unlocking the secrets of a track master who is at his peak - at age 91
There is a secret to winning a footrace. Anyone who has put enough pavement beneath his or her feet can tell you that it's not how you start, nor how you finish, that determines whether or not you come in first. The secret lies somewhere in between, in the stretch of time known to experienced runners as the third fourth.

Marathon Training Tips: Week 9 - Proper Hydration
Jul 26, 2007
You need to stay hydrated for survival during your training runs. Adequate fluids will make a difference in how you feel, but how much should you drink?
"Ten years ago, we told people to drink as much as you can, you can never drink enough, but that is bad advice, said Dr. Greg Ewert of Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Now, the mantra is, know your sweat rate, how much weight you are losing and maintain that amount of fluid replacement too."
